Hi guys!  I just wanted to give you a little tip for the day.  Training your dog is so mentally stimulating for them that it tires them out really quick!  I was working with a four month old German Shepherd puppy this morning and after about 20 minutes of training she was pooped.  Training is not only a great way to tire out your dog but it really helps build your relationship.  Just doing simple drills, like sit, down, come, repeat will create a stronger bond than spoiling them ever could!  It is fun and stimulating for both you and them and it helps refresh your dog on their basic obedience commands, a win-win situation for everyone!
